The Labour Party (LP) has commended Senator Abdul Ningi, for speaking out against alleged N3trn padding in the 2024 budget, saying LP senators in the 10th National Assembly agree with him.

Prince Kennedy Ahanotu, the LP National Youth Leader, said this yesterday during a youth-led solidarity visit to the party’s national secretariat in Abuja.

Senator Ningi, representing Bauchi Central at the Senate, was slammed a three-month suspension by the Senate on Tuesday for alleging that the 2024 budget was padded by over N3 trillion.

Ahanotu said, “Many senators besides Labour Party senators backed the suspended lawmaker for his courage.

“There are a lot of people that supported him, but he was the one that the floor was given before he spoke.

“But I can assure you that many senators, including Labour Party senators, are solidly behind him because he is trying to unravel the ills of the National Assembly.”
